Thanks to generous gifts and donations from individuals, Parishes, Dioceses and International Donors over recent years, CMS Ireland has continued to build much needed schools across 4 Dioceses in South Sudan.

It is because of this vital support CMS Ireland has been able to fund the building of 7 Primary Schools and a Vocational College in Yei Diocese, 2 Primary Schools, a Secondary School and Chaima College in Maridi Diocese, 1 block of 3 classrooms in Ibba Diocese, 2 Primary Schools in Kajo-Kej Diocese and a Girls Secondary School in Kadugli Diocese (Nuba Mountains). But education is not just about buildings, the training of 49 teachers was also an integral part of the British Government’s Basic Services Fund grant.

Now, thanks to gifts from 5 Parishes we are able to support the training of a further 5 students on the 2-year course at Yei Teacher Training College. Thanks to the generosity of Agherton Parish, Larne and Inver Parish and Lisburn Cathedral, 3 students – Luate Edward, Ayume Isaac and Santos Aligo Timothy are being trained for Mongo Primary School. We are also grateful to Delgany Parish and Kill O’ the Grange Parish for supporting 2 students – Juma Moses William and Meta Isaac to be trained as teachers for Payawa Primary School.

If you or your Parish is interested in supporting this very worthwhile teacher training project please contact me, David Gough, at the CMS Ireland Belfast office. Education is the key to the future of millions of young people in the new Republic of South Sudan.
